For our last lunch the guys made ceviche with trout they had caught the previous night when we were sleeping, then a chicken pie thing with salad and rice.

And we continued huffing and puffing up. Finally we climbed into a valley where we could see tents!! Woohoo, we were there! Too bad the first set of tents weren't ours.
